Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just a few hours away from its UFC on FOX 19 weigh in event for “Teixeira vs. Evans,” taking place today (Fri., April 15, 2016) inside Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida.
The first fighter is expected to tip the scale at 4 p.m. ET.
UFC on FOX 19 features Glover Teixeira and Rashad Evans battling for a spot in the crowded 205-pound title hunt, after a last-minute injury forced Tony Ferguson to withdraw from his Khabib Nurmagomedov headliner. “The Eagle” now competes elsewhere on the main card opposite newcomer Darrell Horcher at a catchweight of 160 pounds.
In the UFC on FOX 19 co-main event, strawweight contenders Tecia Torres and Rose Namajunas inch their way closer to the 125-pound strap after taking over for Lyoto Machida vs. Dan Henderson, a fight that was canceled when “The Dragon” got into trouble with USADA.
